Terrain Biennial Newburgh Open Call
Calling artists and residents

“The Terrain Biennial is an international exhibition of site-specific art made for front yards, porches, entryways, and windows. By re-purposing private spaces for public viewing, the exhibit encourages dialogue between neighbors, offers discovery and new perspectives, and increases access and visibility to art. The biennial is self-organized and based on collaboration.

Terrain Biennial Newburgh is an outpost of the 2019 exhibition, opening during Newburgh OPEN Studios. The exhibition’s theme is to take stock of the landscape by looking at the terrain we occupy, the built environment, and the topology of our moment. Artists and hosts should reflect upon the ways our environment changes us and how we change it. The exhibit runs September 28th through November 17th.

Want to participate as an artist or host? Email by Monday, July 29th for next steps. Visit for more information on Terrain Biennial.”
